poured from bomber into a pint glass. Pours a dark orange color with a nice head.

Deep and big aromas of hops, oranges, and loads of citrus notes. While not completely complex, it has a lot of depth.

Full bodied with a really good smooth feel. Complete with real good flavors of oranges, citrus', hops and some hot caramel.

One of the better DIPAs that I've had in a while. This is exactly what I want a DIPA to be. There was no booziness to it either.

Pours a light coppery color, with a beige-like head of a couple fingers. Leaves nice spiderweb lace. The aroma is bit on the citrus, juicy fruits, some caramel and slight maltiness backing. Big citrus tastes, quite bitter on the finish, plenty of malts in this IIPA too. Not much in the way of booze noticeable here. It has a rich feel, nicely full bodied, though cleanly finishing aside from some bittering linger. Having this a couple times, I'd definitely have it again. Good stuff.

the malt and the hop flavors make this beer for me. I know that sounds stupid because what (besides yeast) the hell else would you be tasting bud? right? I know, however, a lot of IPAs I have had recently, now that they make up like 90% of the 22ozers at my liquor store :( , have been really bitter and really sweet which i guess = balanced, but i cound't for the life of me find another tasting note for them.
HOWEVER, this beer, this beer is bursting with both flavor and subtlety. malt flavor is rich but not over powering (2 row, munich and carahell) i dont know much about carahell and now i am interested. the hops bring bitterness, but alos complex tropical fruit aromas and spiciness.
this is an all around great IPA

1364th Review on BA
Bottle to Piraat Tulip

Ordered from LetsPour.com

App- A nice golden orange with a yellow ring around the outside. A nice puffy two finger white head. Spotted dots with a small wall. Good density.

Smell- It's a bit of a small creamy hoppy with a bigger fuller malt backbone on the nose. A bit of damp orange with some zest and a little bit of a pepper/amber ale kick.

Taste- It was a nice beer. The ABV for being above 8 is very well hidden. No sting or burn on the flavor profile. The hops are there but not overly done. The bitter is also kept in check and is semi minimal. Well layered with just a tad of pine and a creamy flavor as well.

Mouth- A nice full medium with a small creamy note. Ive noticed this is a trend lately with things being creamy to me. A nice full carbonation level with a nice malty bitter and small hop residual flavor.

Drink- A nice beer. Really was. Was right down the middle for a solid hoppy/malty mix. A little thick and filling but still quite tasty. For the price was a good buy.

22oz bottle. Pours a brownish translucent orange with an inch of head. Minimal lacing. Aromas of resinous hops, onion, garlic, and hints of tropical fruits. Taste is more of the resiny hops along with the onion and garlic flavors. Very dank and garlicy. Medium bodied. This one somewhat reminds me of Gubna. Not sure about the garlic/onion hop flavors on this one. Overall, its alright but I think im done after this one.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A. Orangish-amber with a fluffy long-lasting (and large bubbled) head with large lazy loops of lacing. (Try saying that three times fast.)

S. Dank, resinous hopping with a small onion / garlic garnish over a sweet caramel malt aroma.

T. Grapefruit pith, apricots, pine resin, and a touch of garlic and mint for the hopping flavors. Just barely on the dry side of the sweet/dry continuum. What smelled like a caramel malt actually presents on the tongue as a vaguely 75% biscuit malt and 25% caramel malt sort of flavor.

M. Slightly undercarbonated for the heavier side of medium body. But at least it's smooth in texture.

From a brown 22 oz. bomber, picked up in Ponderay, Idaho. Pours out a slightly hazed copper hue, tall foamy ivory head with impressive retention.

Bright burst of grapefruit hops on the nose, and after much sniffing, not much else. No complaints here though.

The flavour is straight up, in your face, mouth puckering grapefruit citrus hops. A hint--if not simply just a glimmer of the imagination--of bready, biscuit malt can be discerned behind it all, however that may only be urban legend at this point.

Medium-full mouthfeel, full silky smooth texture, with medium carbonation that has its brisk moments.

Everything I'm personally looking for in a regular American IPA, it's lacking some malt backbone or balance for a DIPA, but who cares, this is delicious. Wish I would have picked up more. Really enjoyable stuff, worth seeking out more.

22 oz bottle poured into a tulip at cellar temperature.

L - Pale amber color with a 2.5-finger thick cream-colored head. Great retention, excellent lacing, and a nice amount of bubbles.

S - An earthy and floral hop bouquet with maybe a hint of citrus and a solid malt presence with caramel, nut, and bread notes. Less hop forward than I’d like a DIPA to be, but it still smells nice.

T - Starts off sweet with caramel malt and citrus notes and quickly builds into a blast of bitterness with grassy, floral, earthy, and grapefruit hop notes. All the hops that weren’t there in the aroma are definitely here in the taste.

F - Medium-bodied with medium carbonation, mouth-coating and sticky feel, and a moderately dry but very bitter finish. Earthy hop bitterness lingers for a great amount of time.

O - This is a pretty solid DIPA. It looks terrific, has a great mouthfeel, and while the hops weren’t as apparent as I’d like in the aroma, they were definitely there in the taste. One interesting note is that this ventures away from most other DIPAs that I’ve had in that it doesn’t have as much citrus or pine notes. It has a very grassy and earthy taste. The alcohol is nowhere to be found, as well. This was a pretty tasty beer, and I’d like to try some more from Ninkasi.
